Pop sticks can be used for a wide range of arts and craft activities. These jumbo sized sticks are made from plain wood and can be kept plain or painted and decorated as desired. There’s no end to the things you can make and create with pop sticks! Pop sticks can be used to build structures during construction activities and can even be glued together to ensure your creations and construction pieces last the distance to make houses, bridges, roads, carts, aeroplanes, boats or bird houses. Your pop stick crafting options are endless! Pop sticks can also be kept loose enabling them to be reused over and over again in the home or classroom. They can be used as counters, to make photo frames, to turn into people, used for STEAM activities and experiences, loose parts, glue sticks, stirring sticks and dippers or used as ice block sticks during cooking experiences.
Working with pop sticks allows children to work the muscles in their hands and fingers, building up strength and coordination for fine motor experiences and warms up those little hands ready for drawing and writing experiences in the home or classroom.
Supplied plain for decoration. Size: 15(L) x 1.8(W)cm. Made from Plantation Birch. FSC.
